Civilization VI: How to Take Over and Capture an Enemy City

Conquer all in Civ VI!


Civilization games are known for their lengthy wars and hexagonal combat. The latest installment is no different, and if you want to get anywhere closer to a domination victory, you’re going to want to go on the offensive and take out other civilizations in your path.

When you build an army, find a rational Cassus Belli and get on down to war. Eventually, you’re going to want to know how to take over enemy cities – the bastions holding you back from conquering all. First, you have to wear down the city’s defenses by peppering it with attacks from your units. Catapults and ranged units will be the best at doing this, as they won’t have to directly fight the defenders inside.

However, you do seriously need melee units, as they are the only combatants capable of actually capturing a city. Always make sure you have one of these so that you can walk in and take it from your opponent when their city runs out of health. Keep up this kind of play and you’ll be on the fast track to a domination victory.
